What I find interesting is that men also face online abuse both from men and women but it's less likely to be sexual in content.

Isn’t that Racial Discrimination? Arresting a Black woman just for defending herself? Everybody should have the right to defend themself, but stuff like this is absolutely unacceptable to me! Why do we arrest others of different races or gender just because hey do something that isn’t against the law!?

Well said! "To paraphrase Dr. King, sometimes the biggest obstacles are not the screaming bigots but the moderates who, even if they’re not the ones planting the seeds of hate, are flattening the soil with their shovels of civility."

When asked why women have to be in the EWS to win money, while men don't, Skenderian replied, "These are viewed as two separate competitions and this women’s-only start has become the preference of elite women athletes in distance running for more than a decade."

What a shitty reply. Really? Just because this stupid rule has been in force for ten years it doesn't mean it should still exist...

Great demonstration of solidarity ! I hope such a show of support one day takes place for the Iranian women who have been treated with no less cruelty in the hands of the Islamic Republic of Iran for a very long time and the perpetrators of these crimes ultimately brought to justice.

Women of Resistance: Poems for a New Feminism




An Open Letter to the Protesters Outside
the Planned Parenthood Near My Job

who stuck a cross in my face and told me,
“abortions are the largest genocide of black people,
God won’t forgive you for having one”:

I’m not sure how I became the finger
to pull the trigger of your mouth.

That’s a lie. I know exactly what turned
my lunch break into a firing range

and why this clay pigeon of a body
attracted your aim—
Tell me more, how you care about
“this largest genocide of black people”

when I’ve never seen you and your signs
at a Black Lives Matter protest.

Tell me, did you mourn Tamir & Aiyana & Jordan,
as hard as you celebrated the shooting of a clinic in Colorado?

Do you know how often I’ve walked by
your markers, megaphones, and mantras?

Your pickets signs and prayers that you cock like pistols
as I clench half a millennium of horror between my teeth?
You don’t know my god.
You and mine,...--- ain’t on speaking terms.

My god understands the choices black women
have needed to make in the face of genocide.

My god understands how slave women plucked pearls
from between their legs rather than see them strung up by the neck.
My god doesn’t condemn us who when faced with taking claim of our bodies
do so with our chins unchained to the ground.

My god understands how for generations bodies like mine
were the choice for someone like you to make.
Do you know how many years, women like me
lived equally afraid of both hangings and hangers?
Yet we’re still here, everyday carrying ourselves.

When Mr. Popovich says 'We live in a racist country' this could easily and correctly be considered as an understatement.
US of A is one of the MOST racist, if not THE MOST racist country in the world.
Just paying attention to how a third of voters in 'Merica are still willing to support a total White F..k-up loser, (after all these scandals and revelations), only and only based on their deeply ingrained, internalized racism gives a glimpse of what we're dealing with in here.
But it's even worse than what might look on the surface.
This is not just some sentimental, emotional racism, "structure of feeling" kind of thing. This institutionalized racism is a major aspect of the political-economy in American society, which has been produced and reproduced on a daily basis, to this very day.
Below is one of the most informed analysis on the material roots of racism in 'Merica.

While conservative muslims seem to be the most notorious in observation of women covering their bodies and hair, it should be noted that covering of woman's hair is also discernible amongst conservative Jews and Christians.
Then there's this reality that in each religion we have a multitude of practices and perspectives, so in each case it would be useful to specify exactly which community within each religion is being referred to; the conservative, the traditionalist, the liberals, the modernists,...
All organized religions have a shameless, immoral instrumentalist approach to spirituality and claim a monopoly on truth and their notion of god. Would it be surprising to have some muslims instrumentalizing Islam, furthermore, and claiming their insistence on use of burqa is the truth?
Although there's absolutely no textual reference to it in their "holy book?"

That is a good question; why Muslims adopted & enforced burka on their women?
Could it be bad fashion sense. I mean really god awfully bad fashion sense?
Why would anyone want to wear all that unnecessary extra layer,especially in rather hot climates?
Burka might not be in Koran or Hadith, but all historical accounts concur that he, Mohamad, was pretty insecure about women. Wonder why?
Then again the whole reason behind Patriarchy is men's insecurities towards women.

There are some data that FGM exists in Islamic countries outside of Africa. Also those countries do not readily give that kind of statistics to outsiders, so it doesn’t mean that it is not practiced or not endorsed by the religious establishment. However, FGM like burka (or Nigab) existed before Islam among some tribes and the right question again to ask is why Muslims adopted these practices, especially burka? If it’s not in the Koran and not supported in any credible Hadith?
